What Is Dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, is a cactus fruit native to the Americas in tropical locations.
Dragon fruit is dramatic looking - with a bright red outside with green "scales" (like a dragon) and white fruit with black seeds inside.
Dragon fruit tastes a bit like a cross between a kiwi and a pear - it is sweet and delicious with berries and fruits!
How To Cut Dragon Fruit
To cut a dragon fruit, use a sharp long knife and cut the fruit in half.
Using a butter knife or spoon, slide along the fruit to remove it from the peel.
Fruit can then be diced, or cut with a fun cookie cutter to make a shape like I did for pictures here.
What Fruit To Serve With Dragon Fruit
Dragon fruit is great with all sorts of fruits - blueberries, kiwis, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, pears, apples, passionfruit, papaya, mango, and grapes!
